D Spot in East Metro

Maplewood? Oakdale? Not sure. You make the call. But I took I-94 to Century/MN120, went north and got to D Spot at 705 N. Century.

I've been wanting to try this place since I read about it on

It was great! I got to try 4 of their 60 varieties. They were distinct and delicious and the wings seemed like real, fresh chicken wings. Not some industrial "parts is parts" chicken from a factory.

The sauces were good. Damn good. And really really different. In no particular order:

Traditional BBQ,

Blueberry Maple - really good...but more of a dessert wing, not that there's anything wrong with wings for dessert

Dirty Dozen - jerk, sriracha, harissa and honey? wow!)

Ben Grimm - curry curry peanuts, pineapple, coconut and more curry?

They looked like they were finished on the grill. Carmelization was apparent and abundant and added complex flavors.

56 flavors left to try...too bad the St. Paul location didn't fly.
